A whirlwind of a Year
.I think 2020 is going to be a year of breakthrough moments for me.
Have you ever had times in your life when you find yourself quite content, doing what you are doing, living your best life, enjoying the serenity of finally having worked out all the hard stuff ... and then WHAM! you've switched tracks, and now hurtling down a new path at breakneck speed, no brakes in sight, no idea where it's going to lead, and it's thrilling and new and exciting, but also scary?
Well ... that's me right now.
1. I lost my mum to cancer two months ago. We hadn't spoken in two years. We'd had a pretty good relationship before that and yet finding the words for both us to reunite was much harder than it should've been. So, it got left.
2. We've had a couple of weeks of wondering whether we were safe in our home, having 3 bush-fires closing in around us. But as scary as it was, it also engaged what was needed.
3. 5 days ago, I swallowed my fear and put myself out there as an author. And I mean, really put myself out there. I am no longer doing the part-time thing, failing to promote myself or my work, or looking at myself as an imposter. I've ignored all the self-belief stories I've been telling myself for years that I'm not good enough.
And now, I've come out the other side of the storm.
My lesson - don't keep quiet when you have something to share. Don't put off what lights you up. And when you get scared, be brave and move forward.
